“Planting by numbers makes planting simple!”Paraic

Do you have a garden bed or border that needs planting? Are you wondering where to begin or what plants will work for you? Then, planting by numbers is perfect for you!

Planting by numbers makes planting simple. Horkans recommend that you plant by numbers (in groups of 3 or 5). This process means that your plants will grow in unison, create more colour and will have a greater visual impact. Planting by numbers means that the planting process is simple and also that the maintenance is easy.
